COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hirter Morchl beer is not just a unique brand – its production method also differs from that of other dark beers. Hirter Morchl is still brewed the “proper” way, with dark brewing malt, hops and caramel malt, which are also responsible for its dark colour. Beer lovers will appreciate its dry maltiness on the palate and pleasantly rounded, faintly bitter finish. The Hirter Morchl is another specialty beer that is allowed to mature naturally and in its own time and that is neither pasteurised nor otherwise interfered with. It is rendered non-perishable by means of a double filtering process.

500 ml bottle at Krah-Krah in Vienna. A beer than illustrates neatly the limitations to the term Dunkel. Near-black, heavily caramelled with a touch of black asphalt, but not too sweet. Bitterness virtually absence but a bit of hop aroma. A must-have in Austria.

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 It is hard to find a better, true-to-style central European dunkel in the midwest. Brown with a red hue. Low carbonation, and a short lived, brown head. Aroma has malt and red meat. Lots of malt in the flavor, with fresh bread and lager yeast. Very smooth, and a good, sweet finish. Rerated 10/21/2011. Score unchanged. This time, I notice sediment floating in the beer, unusual for a dunkel, but I have no problem with that.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
50cl bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is strong and complex: Lots of malty sweetness, caramel, toffee, roasted notes, coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar with coffee, chocolate, roasted notes and hints of spicies. Medium/full bodied with good carbonation. Excellent brew.

A very nice dunkel. Rich and malty. A little bit toasty and roasty, but mostly yummy. I am pleased. Serving: Bottle and tap

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle From Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a dark amber/ brown with a light beige head. Inviting aroma cocoa, nutshells, and german malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of vienna malts with a touch of chocolate and tobacco, countered by a very mild, balancing herbal bitterness. Nutty and grainy finish. Pretty solid example of the style.

A fine Austiran dunkel. It is sweet and malty, but super drinkable. notes of cocoa and subtle hosp adorn the tongue.

EtTuCthulhu (1006) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2013
The color of the beer is a reddish brown with a thick off-white head, and the aroma is strongly of roasted chocolate malts, fig, and dough. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, but the palate fuses a soft carbonation, an astringent yet abrupt finish, medium body, and a creamy texture.

darioklc (506) - Karlovac, CROATIA - SEP 10, 2013
Dark colored with light tan head. It has some chocolated taste with hint of roasted coffee and some caramel maltness. Very drinkable because of light body. It’s tastes really nice.
